Mobile skills support in social care
'Cuppa' is an online platform delivering highly concise, workplace-specific performance support to social care staff. Cuppa resources ('sips') will be bite-sized - a skills boost in the time it takes to drink a cup of tea. Cuppa will use mobile channels, exploiting an accelerating 'bring your own device' trend to deliver just-in-time learning to a workforce that is on its feet, pushed for time and not always well supported. We want Cuppa to catalyse a trend towards mobile learning for care workers, to improve their skills, so they in turn can improve the lives of the people they support.
